GWO Sea Survival training has never been demonstrated inside an exhibition centre before
Following a comprehensive tender, GWO has appointed RelyOn Nutec as its Demonstration Partner for the Safety, Skills and Training Zone at WindEurope Offshore.
The company will deliver an exciting programme of live demonstrations, combining several GWO training modules into one realistic training scenario. RelyOn Nutec's specialist GWO training team has devised a 45-minute demonstration programme which will be repeated across the three day schedule. The programme includes key elements from Working at Height, Advanced Rescue, Enhanced First Aid, and for the first time ever, Sea Survival and Slinger Signaler.
Jakob Bjørn Nielsen, Head of Standards Development at GWO, explained: "We were very impressed with RelyOn Nutec's tender. They met and exceeded all of our requirements to deliver an engaging programme that will give a lot of value for the people attending. The very fact they are able to incorporate a 60m3 swimming pool, crane and scaffold into a mixed use exhibition area for 80 guests shows the extent of theirs and our ambition for this event."
RelyOn Nutec's first demonstration begins at 10.45 on 26th November and will follow the scenario below.
The Zone will be equipped with a Bosch Silent meeting system, allowing demonstrators to be clearly heard by audience members. Cameras in the pool and the nacelle will stream live images to the video screen. The speaker will also refer to the images displayed on the screen during his presentation.
October 4th will be a special day as our community of safety and training in wind energy gathers in person for an all-new event in Copenhagen.
Throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic, the GWO Audit & Compliance committee has issued advisory notes communicating agreed advice, guidance and exemptions from our regular governance (requirements and standards).
Global Wind Organisation (GWO) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) have signed a two-year partnership agreement to highlight the importance of safety, training and job creation to power wind energy development and the global energy transition. The wind energy industry is a major opportunity for countries to create high-skilled, local jobs to boost economic growth and reach their Paris Agreement goals.
The taxonomy establishes a transparent and coherent framework to describe safety training characteristics, allowing for a better understanding of “what good training looks like”.
The modules are reviewed in response to feedback from GWO members and 2020 workplace data from G+ which places manual handling incidents in the top three most reported injury processes.
